the election. at the united nations, president obama used the world stage to declare. >> the attacks on the civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> reporter: his most expansive comments on what he called the crisis in the middle east. he invoked the memory of one fallen american. >> we must reaffirm that our future will be determined by people like chris stevens and not by his killers. today we must declare that this violence and intolerance has no place among our united nations. >> reporter: to the world he offered a lesson in u.s. values. first, denouncing the insighting video. >> a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the muslim world. >> reporter: next, affirming america's embrace of all religions. >> we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> reporter: then a lesson in tolerance and the freedom of expressi expression. >> like me, the maj
, the federal teachers unions, so if they can elect someone then that person is supposed to be representing the public vis a vis the teachers union with, but actually most of their money came from the teachers union. it's an extraordinary conflict of interest. that's a problem and should be addressed. >> really? you think that's an extraordinary conflict of interest. well, what if you were pushing for deregulation of the banks and as president would be critical of making that decision and some of your top donors were actually banks? what if? well it turns out of course, not some of this is top donors are banks all of mitt romney's top donors are banks. look at the top eight donors, goldman sachs bank of america j.p. mar gone chase morgan stanley. credit sui south southeast not even americans. at this timety, wells fargo and barclays. >> go ahead and buy the presidency through mitt romney and don't worry if i get elected, i'll give you everything you want, all the bailouts in the world all the deregulation in the world. how about that conflict of interest mitt frickin romney. >> who's winnin
in "the war room." it is 42 days until the election. please please, please register to vote. it is your right. we've made it'. go to current.com tomorrow morning. we'll see you next time. >> welcome to young turks. mitt romney and president obama are competing for bill clinton's attention. >> a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> president clinton, thank you for your very kind introduction, although i have to admit i really did like the speech a few weeks ago a little bit better. >> all right romney in that speech had a whopper about special interest. you know what i love about this show? facts. we're going to bring you facts about his top donors. will blow your mind. hows that for fun? you know mitt romney's best friend caused this. >> it was a scramble in the end zone and then a split decision. one says touchdown another says no. >> this is comical to me, really. >> how is mitt romney related to that? i'm going to prove that. you sit right here and you'll see exactly how he's related. it turns out our government has been lying to us about civil
politics, you've probably noticed that polling of the presidential election has swung quite decidedly in the president's favor over the last couple of weeks. the real clear politics polling average now has obama up 4.1 points over mitt romney in national poles. nate silver's prediction model put barack obama's odds of winning the election above 80% for the first time ever. swing state polling just this week seems to confirm the trend. a new quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll shows surprisingly strong leads for the president. the galup tracking poll shows obama up six points. it's pretty hard to survey the polling data and not come to the conclusion that barack obama is beating mitt romney, that if the election were held today barack obama would win and that romney has a relatively steep though certainly not insurmountable uphill climb to victory. that is if you operate in the alternate epi stem mick universe of the media. >> that begs the question, are these polls dishonest? >> no. look, we endo you them with a falls scientific precision. >> these polls, i don't pay attention to the
mondale say that the night before the election. a lot of desperation going on on the far right, but what's happening in the race? >> laser focus on the swing states. the candidates in virginia today, one of 30 states where early voting is already under way. it's a state president obama won in 2008 by more than six points. and where a polling average from real clear politics shows him right now at this moment up about 4.5 points. yesterday both candidates holding rallies in ohio, crisscrossing the state, sometimes almost running into each other they were so close campaigning. mitt romney tried to brush back suggestions his campaign is faltering there after that "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll showing him ten points down in ohio. >> i'm very pleased with some polls, less so with other polls. but frankly at this early stage, polls go up and down. i don't expect to get 100% of the vote. i know i'm not going to get 100%. i hope to get 50 plus percent and make sure that i become the next president. >> talking about all those polls yesterday, mitt romney cited gallup and rasmussen, a coupl
calls that sent everyone into a frenzy. >>> just 42 days until elections. the battle over voter ids is intensifying in sever states. tens of thousands you may not have your votes counted. tote in pennsylvania, the state is trying to prove that it's new voter id law will not is enfranchise voters. and a justice department decision is being discussed in another state. >> can they hear us across the street? >> reporter: as the pennsylvania supreme court pree paired to hear argue lts on the new voter id law, the naacp protested what they call a thinly veiled attempt to suppress voters. >> we have seen more states, pushing more laws, pushing more voters out of the ballot box than we have seen in the past 100 years. >> reporter: it is a scene played out in states across the country. civil rights groups pushing back against voter id laws. >> the effort to change the rules of the game at the last minute is a really misguided effort. >> reporter: wednesdndy wiser s hundreds of voters may not have the right id. the elderly, college students, poor people, blacks and latinos. groups that tradit
have shifted by about three points in each of the last couple of elections, and they tend to go against the incumbent administration. yes, there are questions about turnout. we expect to see a higher turnout among seniors, a slightly higher turnout among white voters, perhaps slightly higher among latinos, but most importantly we expect there will be fewer democrats relative to republicans in 2012 than there were in 2008. cheryl: scott, let's stay on this demographic issue because back in 2008 the turnout was actually higher for african-americans, obviously, most of them going for president obama. at the same time, normally that turnout number is about 11%. is it your sense in the numbers that you're seeing and tracking that we're going to see more of that realistic 11 percentile of african-american voters turning out this election? >> i believe the african-american turnout itself will be just about the same as it was in 2008. however, i believe the white turnout will be a little bit higher. there were a lot of seniors who were very discouraged with the choices last time around, so i be
walter mondale's people were blaming the polls back in 1984 a day before the election. the day before reagan got 49 states. blaming everything else but where the blame lies. and that is mitt romney and his horrible campaign. peggy noonan was right. you know, these idiots blast people like peggy noonan, these idiots blast people like "the wall street journal." these idiots blast people like laura ingram. why aren't you a loyal republican? well, i think a loyal republican says the house is on fire. and time's running out. if we want to save this house, we'd better do it now. i tried that a couple of weeks ago. guess what? time's running out. you know when early voting starts in ohio? less than a week. >> 26 states have already started voting. >> 26 states have already started early voting. in ohio where we're going to show some polls this morning that show just how horribly mitt romney's doing in ohio. you know what? i was saying last week there are 45 days. there aren't really 45 days left. they've got to turn this thing around or they lose. this is what jason riley wrote in "the wall
a muslim brotherhood member elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 pele have been killed in syria. these e not bumps in the road eseanlis, these are developments we don't want to see. this is time for a president who will shape events in the middle east not just be at mercy to the events in the middle east. >> mike, we talk about how mitt romney's out of touch all the time. i would say a president saying that some of the problems inhe midd easre pshe road" is extraordinarily out of touch when you have a u.s. ambassador scraped off the streets of benghazi, 20,000 killed in syria. you've got israel, our closest ally in the middle east inopen, bacallerbafaet their leader and our leader. you can go around the entire region. it's mass chaos. troops getting gned down by supposed allies every day in afghanistan. these aren't bumps in the road. this is an absolut mess. ve feel of tehran 1979. i'm not saying it's going to go that way, but you remember 1979 and the chaos that ensued. this isn't it. but this isn't a bump in the road. >> this is not1979. >> so it's not -- paury irf all, how d
, adjunct fellow at the manhattan institute. >>guest: it was the speech of a president running if re-election, not a hint of apology for america for the values in this speech, a lot of toughness, there was almost a focus only on the middle east and the muslim world. no mention of china, russia, the other trouble spots. it was all, fellow, here is what we expect of you. pull up your socks. let's cut the whining about outrage. look at your responsibilities to your people, to free speech, to the values of the united nations and to our values. he set some standards. >>shepard: he was tougher in this speech against those in the muslim world whom you mentioned than he has been in previous addresses. >>guest: very much so. there was no islam is a great religion, none of that today. there was just a statement about how important it is for these new countries feeling their way, led by new men, to get a handle on the violence that threatens the presence of americans in their country. one thing you said that intrigued me, he said we want to stay, we want to help you, we don't want to dictate, we want di
adversaries. >> let's go to the election. you have a 50-50 race. >> it looks like a tossup for president. the house will stay in republican hands but no one can be sure. >> how does the risk affect your strategy. i think the sentiment is that obama is probably going to win. i have been pleasantly surprised to see how the stock market has been in the polls. i think if the election were here today obama would win. but, so that basically if romney starts to do better i think that is good news for the stock market. by hook or by crook do you think the hook will be solved? even congress doesn't want a recession. i don't care about the composition of congress. they know that a $450 billion tax hike will doom us. do you assume that they are going to get through the fiscal cliff without falling off it? >> i would say this though, i think there is enough strength from the home building and the rising house price impact on the economy, that if we do go over, that i think we will avoid a negative consequence and bear in mind that the open-ended decision by the fed to go to qe 3. i think he will be

have for mitt romney given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think, you know, the debates e very important for him. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's going to double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties bee no know that the overwhelming number of those people work and have children and the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is the median income is as low as it was in 1995 now, and until the current eleion season, republicans and democrats crpported both the child tax it andhe earned income tax credit. this is a rejection of basicmor bipartisan policy to support workingfamilies. it is not a bunch freeloaders. >> there he goes. piers mo bringing up the 47% from the secretly videotaped moment in that fund-raiser back in, what, may. but no big sis hs going straight for that 47% line. noand quite interesting because bill clinton on my show tually a few months ago had, of course, supported mt romney over his record of bain capital and refused to join inhe obama super pac bashing of romney over that. >> that made news. >> it mad

election-season line against iran. the cold realty is that after nearly four years of failed diplomacy and half-hearted sanctions that he opposed until congress forced his hand, neither iran nor israel believe him. he talked about diplomacy but that time is not unlimited. is that enough? i mean, don't republicans have a point here? >> it is hard to tell. i think "the wall street journal" was trying to give him a left-handed compliment. he was very firm yesterday and he was very clear. you know, i think diplomacy, in general, is a business of nuance. but yesterday he was about as firm and clear and it was a very beautiful defense of american policy or freedom of speech. he was very clear on the nuclear issue and thought he spoke beautifully about chris stevens. i think the editorial opinion this morning is very favorable to him. >> and to your point, i think he did speak very clearly. he did speak very forcefully and beautifully. but i think what republicans are saying is to what end? we have been speaking beautifully about these topics for four years now and the centrifuges are still t
